Suggestions for automating actions in Windows software

I use a Windows application called ActionOutline.  It's really useful to me. I need to create new folders in this application.  It does not have any macro facility.  The folders I create are for each day:  For example 

20 May Saturday

21 May Sunday

22 May Monday 

and so on. I have to click on several links to create each folder . Then I have to go to each folder and rename it. 

I am wondering if there is some universal macro facility for Windows 10 which could execute the series of mouse clicks and typing I must do to create the folders. I guess you'd call this automation software?  

Question:  What automation software would you suggest to use?  

 Any other suggestions are welcome.

can you not use the standard macro ?    see     How do I create macros? - Microsoft Support 

@nobus: No, because that is a feature of a particular mouse and keyboard drver, and not available without.

The !ink refers to the Microsoft Mouse and Keyboard driver, which comes with MS hardware only.

i think it is the same for every mouse/kbd no?

No, it is a special features of some drivers.
